Girl groups have always provided us with the most glamorous fashion looks and some of the most iconic hits in music history. From Destiny’s Child to Spice Girls to Little Mix and many more, girl groups carve out space in an industry—and a world—that is so often dominated by men. For decades, girl groups have helped young women embrace their femininity (whatever that looks like) and emotional experiences.
These women are proof that dreams can come true and that we are all capable of great success. They continue to blaze a trail for the female artists who follow behind them, and in 2023, there’s a whole new crop of groups killin’ the game.
Meet Me At The Altar
This pop-punk group consists of three members: Ada Jaurez (drums), Téa Campbell (bass guitar), and Edith Victoria (lead vocals). These girls originate from the East Coast – New Jersey, Florida, and Georgia. Their music consists of energetic lyrics and heavy guitar.
My top 3 tracks: Caught in the Middle, Here’s to War, Changing States
Members Jorja Douglas, Stella Quaresma, and Renée Downer are all from the United Kingdom. The group’s sound and style is reminiscent of the 90s pop and R&B sounds of TLC and Destiny’s Child.
My top 3 tracks: Another Guy, Losing You, Cardboard Box
The Aces is an alternative pop group consisting of four members: Cristal Ramirez (lead vocals and guitar), Alisa Ramirez (drums), Katie Henderson (guitar), and McKenna Petty (bass), all originating from Utah. Fans of HAIM and Wolf Alice would enjoy The Aces’ ability to get listeners up and dancing with stunning vocals and groovy instrumentals.
My top 3 tracks: Lost Angeles, Don’t Freak, I Can Break Your Heart Too
Originating from Madrid, members Ana Garcia Perrote (vocals and guitar), Carlotta Cosials (vocals and guitar), Amber Grimbergen (drums), and Ade Martin (bass and backing vocals) form an eclectic band with a rock-sound reminiscent of the 60s. Their style resembles that era, too. Among some of their biggest influences are Bob Dylan and The Velvet Underground – of course Hinds adds their own Spanish twist to these sounds.
My top 3 tracks: Castigadas En El Granero, Between Cans, Chili Town
This English rock duo consists of Amy Love (vocals and guitar) and Georgia South (bass). Their sound leans toward electronic music: heavy bass and dubstep vibes. They recently collaborated with Sam Smith and Kim Petras on the Unholy remix.
